Paperpotmachine (Turbo)

The paperpotmachine has been developed to produce paperpots. Paperpots are made by machine with substrate and paper. The paperpotmachine is a machine which is developed 25 years ago by HETO. The reliability of the technology has always been the key to the success for this best-selling machine. A machine that even with daily use you will not let you down.



With the paperpotmachine it is possible to produce so-called paperpots using soil and paper. The disconnected soil is supplied through the chute provided with a driven movement. The movement will allow for a regular delivery to the venturi. The paper is unrolled by means of a roll and a conductor-roll and then by means of a folder folded around a pipe. Against the top the needle is glued with a flat iron. In this way an endless sausage is created with an adjustable size. At the same time the soil is driven by means of pressurised air through a venturi. These so-called sausages are transported by means of transmissions and on the desired length are cut by one fast, rotating, self-sharpening knife.


It is possible to use the paperpotmachine type turbo in combination with a HETO movable bunker or a  paperpot-fully-automatic for automatically moving paperpots into the trays.
